When I was that rude than,why I will look for you to find another place,so you could satisfy your's?? Of course,when doesn't goes on your way that's how you do it;tell a LIE.We never asked you for renting another room,we were already booked like you wrote above yourself;we asked you to only adjust the price with your reservation party for the third person that you didn't included in booking and didn't want to pay, or to cancel the room for free of charge since you didn't want to consider policies,that are written and posted on the web site;NO pets,NO canoe/kayaks,NO bikes in rooms are allowed.Do you think that people can not understand trues and untrue,fabricated twisted storys like yours?

Can't believe it that you get so dishonest because we do not allow in room bikes,pets,kayaks or canoes-do you think that you will sleep in hotel room than? Your's;jerk,obnoxious,"like to call him",it is a threatening language and it is your language,is not mine,ours. I never saw and talked to your wife,I always show respect especially for elderly and why we will need your back pack?

This place looks kinda run down and that is because outside it is. The rooms inside are a little dated but the bed was super comfy and even had proper sitting chairs and a couch which made for a more enjoyable evening while socializing with friends we were travelling with.

Looked for good motel/hotel reviews in the area where we were going to be kayaking. Motel 72 came with very good reviews. It’s an older barn looking building and definitely not for those who are high maintenance. But.... it is CLEAN and the beds are comfy. Room had fridge,
